The ROFEL Trust was set up in 1985, by Rotary Club of Vapi, to provide educational facilities in the region at all levels. In the initial years, the trust organized and awarded scholarships for local students for study outside Vapi in various disciplines, ranging from engineering and medicine to business administration and arts & commerce. The Trust soon branched out to start the first Arts & Commerce College in Vapi in 1990, followed by a Bachelor of Business Administration Course in 1996. This was followed further in 1999 by a Management Institute (G R I M S) to conduct the course at Post Graduate Level and a College of Science and College of Pharmacy.
G R I M S is a logical extension of these educational endeavors to the growing need for managerial manpower in this region.
